I originally posted my feelings about PLSII in the hopes that the OP would give it a chance and not be scared into inaction by the book.  I wanted to share the discovery so to speak, as PLSII seriously helped mitigate my own anxiety about law school...(though given the competitive nature of law school and the forced curve, my own purposes of getting top grades would probably have been better served by keeping my trap shut!)  Having accomplish my original goal, I am henceforth going "underground."  (*nods to BigTex*) 

Yeah especially since she's going to YOUR school! LOL

You're right, Nylo.  I'm going to take it at PCCC.  Thanks.

Good luck!

However, I've taken summer courses 2003 & 2004 at PCCC in Haskell and I must say the rooms/desks, and even the library is nice and spacious.
I just didn't want to drive that far in October. (20-30 minutes).

If you've already been to PCCC and liked it, wouldn't that be the clear choice? Why risk something new by going to R-NB? The LSAT is not the time to try new things. A 30-min drive is a small trade-off for familiarity and the emotional security that provides.

has anyone taken the lsat at rutgers - new brunswick or haskell (passaic county comm. college)?


I took it at Passaic County Community College (Oct 04) and it was AWESOME! They split us up into several classrooms so there were only 20 or so people per room (less people = less noise, less tension, less stress). The tables were big and the best part is everybody gets their own, so it the wacko next to you is going crazy erasing stuff, your desk doesn't shake. The proctors used digital timers, gave clear instructions and proper 5-min-remaining warnings. I could not have asked for a better test-taking site and recommend it highly.

Well your gf knows Dean Deustch and that's good enough. Six degrees of separation, baby!

I agree with MSUDuster. Go with CT. It's nice to be close to family. Having a great support network (not to mention being happier) is PRICELESS.

I have my fingers crossed for you!!!

Can your partner put in a good word for you to Walton & Co? It definitely won't hurt, and who knows, maybe that'll be enough to push them off the fence in your favor.

On a side note, I got dinged from CUNY. Oh well - can't win 'em all!

I think education-wise, the schools are comparable. Same thing with placement. With either school, you'll still pretty much stuck in the tri-state area after graduation. So basically, it comes down to a quality of life issue. Are you willing to cough up an extra $20k to live in CT? For some people, it might not make much sense, but for you and your wife, it just might. Does your wife prefer CT too? Would you guys be able to buy a house there, unlike in NJ? Would it affect plans for starting a family? etc. I personally put a LOT of weight on quality of life when making these kinds of decisions where there is no real right or wrong.
